  • This forum does amazing things.
    We have the ability to do more. As 2020 rolls slowly to a close, and we all look to 2021 with a mixture of hope and apprehension- I think it’s high time we ‘re-launch’ the cycling club.

    In our midst are national champions at CX, TT, some pretty high ranking track and Crit racers, XC nutjobs and incredible endurance racers.

    We could in theory adapt to become an excellent training base for many of these sports.
    Virtual training rides and small group sessions, both on/off road and on track.
    There are areas we need to grow- and my hope is that the Dot CC section will grow to include a women’s team, with dedicated training sessions, and appropriate support.

    There is a large amount of logistics- and I guess I’m hoping that now we’re all(not all) old and ride geared bikes in at least the same proportion as we do our sweet fixies, that we can use the talent and general piss-taking to our advantage next year.

    So to that point- things I’m going to aim to help with:

    1. Kit order
    2. Functional training and hopefully physiology testing(tbc)
    3. Vague Organizational skills
    4. Setting up the first AGM
    5. Setting up the sub-sections with appropriate people in charge

    DOTCC will always remain free to join, and aims to have as few barriers to entry as is possible.

    So- if you’re keen to help out. Coach. Ride. Race. Bicker. Let me know, and let’s get this next year organised.

    NB- the club name is
    DOTCC is just the nickname/ hashtag/ a useful way of separating DOTCOM (forum) and DOTCC (club).
